Hoping to give more control over setups and strategy to race teams, NASCAR is refusing to get involved in monitoring whether teams choose to follow recommendations set each week by Goodyear.

This year, they’re in a different frame of mind, back to their familiar underdog role and hoping to use it to their advantage against Arizona on Sunday and, hopefully, beyond. “There isn’t as much pressure,” Gonzaga forward Sam Dower Jr. said Saturday from San Diego State’s Viejas Arena. “I wouldn’t say we’re looser; we’re more aggressive.

But on Saturday night, they’ll likely face pressure in a more literal sense. BYU (26-6, 14-4) has had trouble with defensive pressure on guards — you could call it their Achilles heel. In the Cougars’ last loss to Gonzaga in the WCC championship, they coughed up 21 turnovers, which was good for a minus-10 margin in that particular stat.
